The image is a photograph from the late 19th or early 20th century of actress Cora Urquhart Brown Potter (1857-1936) – an American socialite who left her husband and children for a life on the stage.  While she was never considered to be a truly “great” actress, she had a very successful career, touring Britain, America, Australia, China and India.  She was also a popular member of London’s social set – her friends included the Prince of Wales and the poet Robert Browning.
